02:58<jm_>man 7 debconf
02:58<nubbun>I don't have a page in 7. I guess I need to install another package....?
02:58<jm_>dpkg-reconfigure debconf

03:35<aptitude>i heard ext2 is the standard Linux filesystem, see also resize2fs, or a 2GB filesize For larger files you need a 2.4.x kernel, *and* a glibc which has been compiled against 2.4.x kernel headers.

05:23<mjk>Hm, the man page doesn't look as if it was possible to specify a URI just for a single package. :-/

05:32<mjk>What's the error message?
05:32-!-LoRez [] has joined #debian
05:33<variable>i have hda and i know that there is two partitions, but fdisk shows me like three partitions hda1, hda2 and hda5, but why is that there are 3 partitions?
05:33-!-habtool [] has joined #debian
05:33<variable>where can i put my output of fdisk -l ?
05:33<mjk>variable: How do you know there is only two partitions?
05:33-!-jscinoz_ [] has joined #debian
05:34<mjk>Or rather

05:34-!-blarson [~blarson@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
05:34<etoiliste>the error is device: default can't be opened for playbac
05:35<mjk>etoiliste: Is that the complete error message?
05:35<etoiliste>no such device
05:35<mjk>etoiliste: There should be a reason in parentheses behind that message
05:35<mjk>etoiliste: ah ok
05:35<mjk>etoiliste: Okay, then it's not a permission problem (like not being in the group "audio").
05:36<etoiliste>ah ok
05:36<etoiliste>without alsa sound work but verry low
05:36<mjk>variable: Aaah, I see
05:36<variable>hda2 and hda5 looks like the same but and not the same
05:36<mjk>etoiliste: Low? Low fat? Low quality?
05:36<etoiliste>all this
05:37<variable>what gives me that + sign in the end of bloks
05:37<mjk>variable: hda2 is your extended partition which contains 1 "logical drive" (DOS/Windows speak), called hda5
05:37<mjk>variable: IIRC, '+' means that the end of the partition is not exactly on a cylinder boundary.
05:38<mjk>variable: So that a few sectors are "lost", i. e. unused.
05:38<mjk>variable: But you shouldn't care about them, this is not the 80s ;-)
05:38<etoiliste>how i can reconfigure alsa
05:38<variable>ok, so what partitin i can mount?
05:38<mjk>etoiliste: Probably with dpkg-reconfigure alsa (or alsa-base? Or whatever ...)
05:38<variable>i need the biggest partition

05:43<mjk>variable: The usual PC BIOS partitioning scheme uses max. 4 partitions: max. 1 extended (which can contain a lot more logical partitions) and max. 3 (with extended partition) or 4 primary partitions.

05:45<petemc>whats the grep for?
05:45<mjk>variable: fdisk -l | grep '^/dev/.d.[1-4]'
05:45<variable>so if i have 4 patritions plus one swap, so there sould be 4 or 5 logical partitions?
05:45<mjk>petemc: For showing only primary and extended partitions, without listing logical partitions (whatever he wants that for =)
05:46<mjk>variable: No.

05:49<variable>ok so have sata drive, and i made 4 partitions 2*ntfs, 2*ext3 plus that swap
05:49<variable>i'll show you what i have done :]

05:53<variable>yes for boot ;]
05:53<mjk>variable: And it has the bootable flag set, so I'd say it's /boot
05:53<variable>how do you know the size from there?
05:53<mjk>variable: The column "Blocks" tells you.
05:53<mjk>variable: I just don't know if fdisk's block size is 1k or 512 bytes.

07:10<jf67007>jm_, is there a command to verify the md5sum of each file comming from apt or do I have to do it manually on each file on my server ?
07:10-!-AutoMatriX [] has joined #debian
07:10<mjk>jf67007: Would "debsums -s" help?
07:12<gsimmons>And1: It won't require firmware, but I've no idea about WPA support. Try and it see.
07:13<jf67007>mjk, but debsums checks the sum "against MD5 checksum lists from /var/lib/dpkg/info/*.md5sums". So if a package come from etch on my sarge the debsum will be ok
07:13<And1>gsimmons: Yeah, I'll do that... thanks for the hint with the kernel driver... I wish anyone would've told me yesterday. :P
07:13<mjk>jf67007: Oh, now I understand ..

07:15<jf67007>mjk, so what is the a solution ?
07:16<mjk>jf67007: You could at least write a script for that with "apt-cache policy <package>" as a starting point for finding the file with the MD5 hash and getting <package> by iterating over the output of "dpkg -l" or something.

07:19<ser>hi, i want to run a script when i am connecting usb keyboard - where should i look for? which package? which docs? thanks for any help
07:20<jMCg>vsftpd doesn't implement "password" of the PAM stack, and pam_cracklib is only used for that, BUT, IIRC, you can limit the number of tries in vsftpd itself.
07:21<mjk>ser: /usr/share/doc/udev/writing_udev_rules/index.html could help
07:21<jMCg>You might then want to proceed to use something like fail2ban to ban users (temporarily?) who have exceeded their tries

07:27<jf67007>jm_: thanks whith debsum and apt-cache policy I think I can resolve my porblem
07:27<mjk>prasanna: It could be that there are unprintable characters inside the word "Entry" so that grep can't find it.
07:27<jm_>jf67007: but not all packages have md5sums in apt-cache
07:27<prasanna>mjk : Entry only

07:39<mjk>prasanna: No, you need to pipe the output of "strings" to "grep" like this: strings z.txt | grep Entry
07:40<mjk>prasanna: On German keyboards, | is on the <> key, and on American keyboards, it's on the \ key (IIRC)

07:50<jm_>you're using it incorrectly: patch -p1 < patchfile
07:51<jm_>but -i should do the same IIRC
07:51<etoiliste>how i can used it correctly
07:51<jm_>if it reports an error it's probably because it can't find a file to patch
07:51<jm_>(which it whines about anyway)

09:57<Zathraz>Hi. Debian etch'n'half stock kernel 2.6.24-etchnhalf.1-486 only supports 1 GB so it seems. Does the 686 version offer 4 GB support?
09:57<clint1986>1 gb of what?
09:58<Torsten_W>no, 3,3 around
09:58<sheldonh>stew: looks like dch has no "append this to the version string". so i need to grok the current version and then feed that plus my append to --newversion?
09:59<weasel>Zathraz: you want the -bigmem flavour, and if you have the CPU, a 686 image at that
09:59<Zathraz>it's an opteron

When I start it as non-root user it accepts, but of course I can't have access to certain dirs and files.... The question: How to run it as root logged ?

10:34<Azhrarn>but as far as NTFS goes, you may not want to mess with it too much
10:35<Azhrarn>as you can easily corrupt your partition

11:09<stew>CDkey51: yes, rsync works via ssh
11:10<stew>CDkey51: it works via rsh, which by default points to ssh on debian (assuming ssh is installed)
11:11<stew>serge: it seems to me youd have to either allow root login, or you'd have to push files from the machine to be backed up instead of pulling them from a remote machine

12:17<dpkg>If you have a question, just ask! For example: "I have a problem with ___; I'm running Debian version ___. when I try to do ___ I get the following output ___. I expected it to do ___." Don't ask if you can ask, or if anyone uses it, or pick one person to ask (ask the whole channel!). We're all volunteers; make it easy for us to help you. If you don't get an answer, ask later or ask

12:17<daemon>hey all
12:17<daemon>im trying to run qemu and I keeper getting an error about kqemu not being present in /dev
12:17<daemon>so I mknod'd it 0 250.. and chmod 666.. and it still beliegves its not present
12:18<daemon>believes *
12:18<dwon>daemon: did you install the kqemu kernel module?
12:18<daemon>dwon, indeed
12:18-!-artefact [] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
12:18<daemon>dwon, actually to clarify that let me check with aptitude
12:19<dwon>daemon: I think the canonical way to get the module installed is to run: aptitude install module-assistant && m-a a-i kqemu
12:19<dwon>(as root, of course)
12:19<dwon>then you *might* need to modprobe kqemu
12:19<Guest2459>hey can I install E17 on Debian Etch
12:19<dwon>daemon: but right now, if you want to check you should run: lsmod | grep kqemu

12:49<mjk>I just successfully managed to permanently downgrade from Iceweasel 3.x to 2.x via APT pinning. The problem is that /etc/apt/preferences reads "Pin: release a=stable", so as soon as the current Debian testing becomes stable, it will try to upgrade to 3.x. What can I do to prevent that? "a=etch" is not accepted by APT.
12:49<dwon>Tuplad: It lists a bunch of ALSA devices for me.
12:50<Tuplad>dwon: for me it only lists: OSS: /dev/dsp1
12:50<dwon>Tuplad: Are your system sound drivers ALSA or OSS?
12:51<dwon>mjk: Instead of something like "deb stable main", you could do "deb sarge main"

20:12<abrotman>i'm not going to use them .. just you know .. test use them!

20:14<themill>nickg: why not wait until you've actually got something that you need to compile?
20:15<prolix>can't the python modules just be placed in the same location as the program and have the interpreter create .pyc from there?
20:16*simonrvn wonders what people smoke sometimes
20:16<prolix>speed may be sacrificed, but if it's speed, then python isn't an optimum choice
20:17<simonrvn>optimal, yup
20:17<prolix>thank you
20:18<stevecotton>would it be rude to point out this list of stuff than needs modifying and then compiling: ?

20:40<enouf>dutche: there's quite a few areas to check out - see, i'm not sure exactly what to do, but i have an idea of atleast where to look - check out 'xev' as mentioned, but also 'xmodmap' (modify your keymap), 'setxkbmap' (mainly for switching locales though) and(for Console only (non X related), see 'showkey', 'loadkeys', 'dumpkeys' . Getting back to X hotkeys, there appears to be no standard, each Manu has their own way.

21:10<bugaloo>so I got it with a modprobe parameter
21:10<bugaloo>I dont know if I need something like that to microphone
21:10<Saturn2888>I'm having an issue w/ my router. It's kinda related to Linux. I'm trying to get the wireless card to work, and I can't verify if I don't figure out what's wrong w/ the router. It is not doing DHCP when connection via Wireless, but it works fine if you connect via a cable. This problem also occurs in Windows machines. Any suggestions? Oh yeah, and statically assigning an IP in the range doesn't help either.

22:55<man>dondelelcaro: basically i want users to only be able to run like a single command, say /bin/echo

22:56<dondelelcaro>man: if you don't want them to have full access to a shell, then they generally shouldn't have a shell.
22:56<man>dondelelcaro: well they need ssh access
22:56<man>dondelelcaro: but they only need to execute a single command basically
22:57<dondelelcaro>man: then they should use rssh which allows them to run only the single monotone command that they need to run
22:57<man>dondelelcaro: like ssh myhost -l user mtn serve user
22:57<man>dondelelcaro: ok, ill check out rssh
22:57<stew>man: you can limit an ssh key to only being allowed to run a single command in the authorized_keys file
22:57<prolix>wouldn't ps give them information to break the restrictions?
22:57<man>stew: i did find that via google
22:57<man>prolix: no, not really, but i am just using it as an example
22:57<man>prolix: they can't use ps to run additional commands can they?
22:57<prolix>right on
22:58<man>i know they could get info they shouldn't have
22:58<dondelelcaro>man: that's the question that you have to ask; lots of VCSes have scripts and such that get run that someone could leverage into a shell if they knew what they were doing
22:59<man>dondelelcaro: right, through a hole in the vcs
22:59<man>i am aware of that
22:59<man>i notice that via sftp you can use ! to shell out, does that just execute the default shell on a machine or does that run /bin/sh?
